My name is Coco Watkin and I am a glass artist. I was born and raised in New Orleans but now live in the remote northern woods of Maine.
I've been crafting for as far back as my memory will take me. I started out with paper and glue, graduated to popsicle sticks, then sewing, decoupage, ceramics, candles, caning, needlework, beading, and on and on. Once married, I moved to Germany and fell in love with painted folk art (Bauernmalerei) and a decade later, my husband introduced me to stained glass. That was over 30 years ago, I remain intrigued with stained glass and decorative painting—but especially the stained glass.
My husband and I raised 5 children while he served in the military, and we are now enjoying the adventure of grand parenting! Some might say I'm "over the hill," but I'm still very young at heart. I'm looking forward to the rest of my life, hoping it will be a long one. There is so much I have yet to learn, and so much I still want to do.
I’m grateful for my health and the opportunity to keep creating works of art for others to enjoy. I especially appreciate the chance to design custom pieces that meet my customers’ specific needs...So don’t hesitate to ask...Just click the “Contact Seller” button on this page to make your request and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can—usually within 24 hours.
